<< "read your original message where it defines the Occult. It does NOT, I repeat, does NOT mean Satan worship."
No, the occult does not always include Satan worship but Satanism does come under the umbrella of the occult. You have made a very crafty attempt to distance the two there but the occult and Satanism can be linked.
<< "unless you have reached that magical 30th degree you have no idea what you are talking about. You seem to take at face value the things you read and don't know about."
Freemasons always defend against uncomfortable revelations by saying non-Freemasons know nothing about the craft, therefore, they can't critisize it but you don't need to member of an organisation to know something about it. Take the Salvation Army, which you mentioned later in your post, you can study all about the history of that organisation and learn a great deal about what it's about but you don't need to become a member first!
<< "Here's a good example of something you might like... among other things that have been declared "Satanic" are organizations like the Salvation Army and the Red Cross. Not by some off the wall idiot, but by the Roman Catholic Church"
I haven't come across any evidence that the Sally Army is Satanic and if the RC Church says it is, I'd like to see the evidence please! I'm suspecting that you're just simply trying to divert the discourse away from discussion of my post.
<< "Look it up, do your research, see what Masons really do, become a 30th degree Mason and then I'll take anything you have to say as a ligitimate argument.
I have done a lot of research and some of it is in my post. Why don't you pick out bits you disagree with and explain why and where I've got it wrong. I gave numberless references to back up what I wrote and I even gave a link to the Grand Lodge of Columbia!
<< "Until then stop all your blathering about how bad Masons are, you're making yourself a fool."
I'll stop when you give me referenced evidence that the information I gave in my post is wrong.
